Notes: 
Review, Network Spring 2006: In 2004 a national project was undertaken that included consultations with women who live in many different rural or remote places throughout Canada—from the high arctic to the prairies to coastal regions and everywhere inbetween. Women who were part of the national project said that a plain-language kit would give them the information they need to make helpful changes in their communities. So the Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence created this useful tool. This is a kit designed to improve the health of rural, remote and northern women across Canada by making sure that women have a say in how health programs, plans and policies are developed. It provides summaries and background information about the national research project, as well as information for local communities to use in advocating for change. The Kit is available in hard copy, but is also available online for free at: www.pwhce.ca/rrKit.htm
